    There are so many great options for planners out there! It may take some time and trial and error for students to find one that works best for them. It can help to offer photocopied sheets of a few planner varieties (horizontally aligned, vertically aligned, monthly, weekly) and also share some online planner resources for students (mystudylife.com, Google calendar, Todoist) to try out.

    These are such great resources, Michael!

    While thinking about the importance of strategy reflection during today’s session, I was reminded of how Visible Thinking routines from Project Zero can help students to start thinking metacognitively. Many of the routines are also helpful for perspective-taking and building empathy.

    This blog post covers a few thinking routines that can be used with students of all ages: https://smarts-ef.org/blog/visible-thinking-routines-to-support-students-learning/
